Your backcountry forays need not entail shivering in the chill of the early mornings and late evenings. Designed specifically with the backpack hunters in mind, the Kelvin Lite Jacket is extremely packable with an extraordinary high heat-to-weight ratio. At about half the weight of the Kelvin Jacket, it is almost like invisible warmth.
The Kelvin Lite is ridiculously warm for how lightweight and compressible it is. It’s so versatile, from a mid to outer layer, along with my rain gear it’s the most accessible item in my pack and in my system nearly every single day of the year. You can stuff into it’s own sleeve, it gets down to about the size of half a Nalgene bottle. Simple and warm and the perfect insulation boost to my system that doesn’t take up a ton of weight and space.

OPEN COUNTRY Open country pursuits run the gamut of moderate to high activity peppered with periods of pure motionlessness. Sitka's Open Country system responds brilliantly to the varying activity level and quickly changing weather conditions that come with glassing open bowls, tiptoeing through aspen groves, battling scree fields, and generally covering miles at a time. Moisture management is the central theme of this line—the key to keeping you comfortable and active. Choose additional layers to accommodate forecasted conditions, as well as the unknown. Face fabrics add the utmost durability and minimum weight. The smooth-woven face dries quickly and offers excellent packability—great for the overnighter in a tent. The GORE® OPTIFADE™ Concealment Open Country pattern is optimized for engagement ranges of 35 meters or more, mountain or open environments, and stalking prey with minimal coverage. This is how we define Open Country.
